Ceridian Powerpay

In all honestly I don’t know a situation where Ceridian Powerpay would not be appropriate to use. I have used it at a company with 12 employees, and at a company with 100 employees. The system works great regardless of company size and the benefits significantly outweigh any (if any) negatives.
I only have experience with the system in the hospitality industry but it covered all our needs and more that I can only imagine that would apply to other industries as well.

TRAXPayroll is well suited for the bulk of situations that any HR professional would ever come across. In my opinion, it's the best product out there for the small to medium size business level. I would imagine that it is less appropriate at the enterprise level, where payroll extends across multiple countries.

Cons

Ceridian Powerpay

  • Would be great if you could search for specific ROEs in the system rather than having to go into each individual pay period package to locate - especially when there may be 10+ ROEs.

Generally, Ceridian Powerpay support is strong, with the edge given to the telephone staff, which is prompt and always helpful. When I have had to reach out via telephone, I am greeted quickly and provided with a quick resolution to my issue. The email support leaves a bit to be desired, though, as my experience with change requests result in long waits for confirmation and completion, with some instances not even being given a resolution to an issue without requiring additional follow-up. I shouldn’t have to stay on top of the support in addition to providing the details needed, and it should just get done.

Any and all of our concerns have been resolved very quickly, and without even so much as a 5 minute wait. Their customer service is uncannily happy, and have left me impressed in every sense of the word. We don't expect to be changing payroll software providers any time soon! They're great!

The number one thing that bugs me is super pushy sales people, so from the start TRAXPayroll was a breath of fresh air because their sales was very low pressure and didn't make me feel rushed of anything. TRAXPayroll also had more features we were looking for and their current reviews were outstanding. Some things I read about competitors said their customer support wasn't as good, which was also a big player in our decision.

Return on Investment

Ceridian Powerpay

  • Positive: Ceridian Powerpay is cost-effective for our organization as we do not require a more robust solution—it fits our needs well without breaking the bank.
  • Positive: Ceridian Powerpay is mostly intuitive, easy to use, and as a result, easy to train team members in. This allows for additional coverage for the payroll system should the key user not be available or require assistance.
